 dufcma llctovQ  VOL. X.   NO. 34  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. JULY II, I9I8.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Suggest Utilization of  City's Vacant Lots.  Advocates Building of New  Municipal Hall  At Monday's meeting of the city  council Mayor Sutherland advanced an interesting suggestion regarding the utilization of some of the  waste land in the municipality more  particularly on the north side of  the city, where he believed that it  would be possible for the city to  place about 200 acres under culti  vation. He informed the counci  that he would like to appoint e  special committee to investigate  the matter.  In the near future, the Mayor  continued, the city would undoubtedly obtain posession of large  sections of land on the north side  through tax sales. In order that  the city might be enabled to obtain  complete posession of several subdivided blocks, he was of the  opinion that it would be possible  to arrange with individuals who  had paid their taxes arid retained  their interest in odd lots to exchange  their holdings for other tax sale  propertj nearer the centre of the  city. The city would then be in a  poaition to apply to the courts for  cancellation of the subdivision of  such blocks and place the property  under cultivation, thus producing  a revenue and assisting the finances  of the city. He would also ask the  comn ittee to consider the placing  of the sewerage disposal grounds  under cultivation.  The idea met with immediate  approval aa the subsequent discus-  showed, and a committee consisting of Aid. Rattenbury, Mantle and  Duggan were appointed for the  purpose.  Aid. Mantle drew the council'a  attention to the fact that at present  there was no hall in Kelowna of  sufficient capacity in which to hold  large public meetings and enter  tainments, and he suggested that  the council consider the expediency  of constructing or arranging for the  construction of a city hall, the  erection of which he considered  would be a great benefit to the  community as a whole.  Mayor .Sutherland said that former councils had in view the erection of a municipal hall on the  site of the present fire hall. Such  a building would accommodate  the fire department, police court,  cells, &c, with the municipal  offices on the ground floor. The  second floor was intended for use  as a hall for public meetings. To  undertake any such scheme would  mean the raising of a large sum of  money by way of debentures and  at the present time this was out of  the question. He would aot be in  favor of taking any action until the  war was ended.  Aid. Mantle said he was not so  much interested in the erection of  a hall for municipal purposes as in  providing a suitable place in which  large public meetings could be  held, and whioh would provide  suitable accommodation for first-  class entertainments, operas, &c.  A discussion arose as to the  rate of wages to be paid for ordinary labor. It was stated that owing  to some employees in the Public  Works department being paid  $3.50 per day, men in other de.  partments had been asking for the  same rate,  Aid. Mantle explained that the  committee had been running the  rock crusher for some little time,  and the men engaged on it had  threatened to stop work unless  they [were given $3.50 per day.  Owing to the fact that rock-crushing was verv hard work and the  provincial government was paying  $3.50 per day to their roadmen,  he had authorized the same rate  to the men while working on the  crusher. The work would soon  be completed and those employed  on other labor would be paid at  the rate of $3 per day.  Aid. Duggan for the Light and  Water ' committee recommended  that the salary of F. Varney be increased to $100 per month and  that the temporary fireman employed at the power houae during  the time the regular staff were taking holiday be paid at the rate of  $3.50 per day.  A resolution was passed to this  effect and also increasing the sal-  Breaks Leg in Bad  Driving Accident  A rather bad driving accident  happened last Thursday evening  on the Vernon road at Benvoulin,  as a result of which Alan McKay,  nephew of Mr. G. A. McKay, lie*  in hospital with a compound fracture of the leg, and othera carry  numerous bruises and scratches.  ' Alan MoKay and Bert Davis, two  local boys working up on the  K.L.O. bench, went out for a drive  Thursday evening round the Rutland bench and on descending the  hill from the store one of the bolls  fastening the shafts came out.  This scared the horse so badly  that it began to kick and finally  bolted. On the Benvoulin road  Mr. and Mrs. Fairweather were  driving homeward with a democrat in the rear of which was a  bassinette containing the baby. The  runaway crashed into the rear of  the democrat with the reault that  the occupants of both rigs were  thrown in all directions, though  fortunately no one was seriously  hurt except McKay who caught  his leg in some way in the wheel  The baby was badly shaken but  unhurt. Two girl cherry pickers  who were alao in the buggy were  thrown out and one of them badly  scratched.  Thousand Dollars Is  Raised by Carnival  Patriotic   Fund to Benefit by  Saturday's Event  Pte. Norman Blackwood  Returns Wonnded  Another Kelowna soldier was  welcomed back yesterday afternoon in the person of Pte. Norman  Blackwood, one of the 172nd bovs  who has seen a good deal of service  Pte. Blackwood bears the very  evident marks of his experiences  both in.his features and in the limp  which his wounds have left him  with. He has been wounded twice  first in the arm and the last time  more seriously bv a shot through  both knees. This laid him up in  hospital for many months, and he  is not yet fully recovered by any  means. He will stay in Kelowna  for a couple of weeks before reporting again at Vancouver.  The Glasgow Herald of June 6th  contains a notice of the death in  action on May 29th of Ernest  Campbell Maclutyre, aged 45, of  the Scots Guards, Deceased was  well-known in Kelowna as a former  Dominion Express agent.  ary of the assessor and collector  to $110 per month,  An application contained in a  letter from Mr. G. A. Binger for  certain "improvements to Charle-  ton avenue was referred to the  Public Works committee.  The Chief of Police submitted  his monthly report showing three  cases before the magistrate during  June and a total of $102.50 levied  in fines. He also drew attention  to the tact that numerous complaints were being received regarding the speed automobiles\nd  motor cycles were being driven  through the streets. The provincial law allows a speed of ten  miles per hour which was often  far exceeded. Even ten miles was  too great and! unsafe at times, and  drivers should reduce their speed  in the business section of the city  especially at street corners and at  crossings where accidents were  likely to happen,  Mr. W. Haug was granted permission to place weigh scales near  his premises on Haynes avenue.  Mr. F. E. R. Wollaston, |of Vernon, wrote asking the council to  endorse certain resolutions passed  at a meeting held in Kelowna May  16th and attended by several delegates from different parts of the  Okanagan interested in irrigation  matters. The resolutions, which  were to be placed before the coming irrigation convention to be  held at Nelson, July 24th, read as  follows: (I) That this convention  recommend to the provincial government that before passing any  amendments to the Water Act,  they be submitted to the water  users for their views: (2) That this  convention urges the provincial  government to take over and administer all water storage works  and main canals."  Tha resolutions were unanimously endorsed.  The great success which attended the Patriotic Carnival on Saturday last must be very gratifying to  those ladies who worked so energetically for it. Although considerable interest had been roused in  the event, no one thought that in  the few short hours during which  the carnival was in ptogress, near  $1000 net would be raised for the  Patriotic Fund. The total receipts  were about $1033, while the expenses were under a hundred  dollars-  The street procession waa a  great surpiise in the excellence of  the turnout, certainly the best ever  seen in Kelowna. Considerable  trouble had been expended on  some of the entries, especially the  automobiles and floats, and they  presented a very good effect. For  the best car Mr. L. Dilworth took  the prize, while the first and second  prizes respectively for the float  went to Miss Vivian Walkem and  Mrs. H. Dillon. Jim Calder and  hia colored bride did the "coon  couple" well and deserved the  first prize they got. Ruth Rowcliffe  as "Folly" mounted on a Shetland,  took second. For the girls costumes  Bessie Duggan was first in a clever  Welsh' costume, and Winnie Dibb  aa England and France, second,  Ian McFarlane and Doris Leathley  took a prize for "Jack and Jill."  Miss Ferrier had a cleverly arranged float, but arrived too late to  compete for,a prize. Mr. Feirier  rode aa a Mexican. Miss Barlee  rode as an Indian warrior, her  make-up including some interesting  bead work and other curios. And  who was Charlie Chaplin ?  A prominent feature of the procession waa a large float bearing a  merry-looking party of " farmerettes" from Rutland, followed by a  party of Pierettes in a decorated  turn-out. Mrs. Duggan as a gypsy  and another lady as a fishwife were  also very good, while even the  water wagon joined in, appropriately labeled "Prohibition," and  surmounted by nigger boys.  The parade was needed by Mr.  Hugh Rose with his bag-pipes and  couple of drummers. Next  came the Cubs, a party of sailor  boys, and members of the ladies'  committee with a banner. Messrs.  G. S. McKenzie and J. B. Knowles,  in an imposing get up of toppers  and frock coats, marshalled the  procession which proceeded from  the Presbyterian church down main  street to the park where the judging  was done by Mr. J. W. Jones.  Such a multiplicity of attractions  and money-raising sideshows were  gathered together in the park that  it would bo impossible to describe  each one in detail. All of them  were energetically handled, and  some proved remarkably profitable.  The two refreshment booths perhaps realized the best return, together making over $300. The  auction sales of live stock donated  by various people also proved a  fruitful source of funds, besides  creating a good deal of fun. In  the raffles Mr. J. F. Burne won an  early Christmks dinner in the shape  of a fine fat goose, Messrs. A.  Bielby and G. Price also securing  similar prizes. The entire crop of  a Bankhead cherry tree was a  novel gift which fell to Mr. Denison, and it is understood he is now  rounding up S.O.S. girls to help  him gather it in. Mrs. Rutfel won  a fountain pen, and Mra, Whitehead a shawl.  Mr. Rogers ran a "Strafe the  Kaiser" booth until Wilhelm was  completely worn out, while Mrs.  Crowley~ofliciated at a "Wheel of  Fortune." A flower booth, an art  gallery, and other things all helped  to entice the coin from the pockets  of visitors. Mr. Scott's six-legged  calf drew much attention to herself, seeming quite happy and contented notwithstanding her extra  limbs. A party of Benvoulin  ladies told tome excellent home cooking.  Nor must the "baby contest" b�� forgot,  ten." In class one Baby Gushing tools the  prize with 272 votes, the twins of Ambrote  Church coming tecond with 74. In class 2  (up to two years) BabyeKsevil got 216  votes and Baby Patterson 96 votes.  During the afternoon Mr. J. Gordon carried out * little programme of race* end  sports for. tha children. The afternoon  alto included drills by children from Rutland and Ellison.  Music wat provided   by  th* Kalowna  Successful Year for  Kelowna Creamery  Payments to Farmers   Show-  Remarkable Increase  1 hat the Kelowna Creamery haa  amply justified its establishment,  and taken its place as one of the  moat beneficial institutions of the  district is again clearly shown by  the very satisfactory position of  affairs at the end of the third year  of its operat'on. After a vear in  which payments to the farmers has  increased almost 50 per cent, over  the preceding period, the company  finds itself with a surplus of $ 1642,  enabling it again to pay a 10 per  cent, dividend to its shareholders,  place a second $1000 to its permanent reserve fund, and to carry  forward a balance of $441 to stabilize to some extent the price of  butter fat against minoi fluctuations  of the market.  These pleasing facts were revealed in the financial statement  presented at the annual meeting  held in the Board of Trade room  Monday morning.  Tbe total output of butter during  the year had been 97,188 pounds,  all oi which had found a ready  sale, payments to the farmers having reached the record aum ot  $37,934.94.  There had been a large increase  in the amount of cream received  from outside points, and it was  stated by the president, Mr. P. B.  Willits, that some criticism had  been levelled against the Board for  paying the same price to outside  as to local shippers, not withstanding that the Company had to pay  freight on outside shipments. This  policy had been amply justified,  however, as the extra cream thus  received had reduced the percentage of overhead charges and  enabled a higher price to be paid  to the farmera.  IV officers were unanimously  selected; P. B. Willets as president,  M. Hereron, v.'-.e-president, W. G.  Benson secretary, with'L. E. Taylor  and J. Leathley as members of the  executive. Messrs. Bell, W. Pryce,  Powley, E. M. Carruthers, J. W.  Jones, A Crichton, Coventry, F. M.  Buckland, E. R. Bailey and A. W.  Cooke completing the board of  directors.  Votes of thanks were passed to  the directors and especially the  president and secretary for their  efficient work during the past year,  It was also decided to place on  record the excellent services rendered by the manager, Mr. S.  Thomas, whose skill as a butter  maker had placed the output of  the Kelowna Creamery in the front  rank of all creameries in the province, carrying off prizes in open  competition with the best of them.  No small share of credit for the  success of the Creomery had been  due to his knowledge and experience.  In discussing plans for the disposal of the surplus funds it was  decided to approve of a suggestion  that the company loan the sum of  $500 lo. the new local Holstein  Breeders' Association to assist in  the purchase of a first-class bull.  This amount would be guaranteed  by the members and r-paid in a  term of years with interest. It was  felt that such a plan would, by assisting the better development of  the local dairy industry, ultimately  rebound to the advantage of the  Creamery.  Mention was made of the'fnrth-  coming convention in Kelowna of the Provincial Dairyman'* Association, during  January next, which it it hoped to mak*  one of the most successful ever held. For  this purpose committees Jwill shortly b*  organized end every effort made to perfect  arrangements for the entertainment of the  Kelowna Club is  Damaged by Fire  Strike May Tie Up  lake Beet Service  In the early hours ot Monday  morning the brigade was called  out to a fire which had broken out  in the premises of the Kelowna  Gub. The fire had gained considerable hold before it was observed and in a short time the  flames were shooting up thtough  the roof. %Hn fe.  Early arrivals on the scene worked hard tu rescue movable furniture, and in this, as the fire was  confined to the upper storey, they  were largely successful. The blaze  was soon under control, but damage to the building was considerable.   Practically the  whole roof  was burnt off, ;.nd, of courae, the|to ,jord recognition to My union"  damage by water wasvery heavy. | Jhe    deadlock   produced seems  Boats' Officers Cease Monday  If Dispute Not Decided  Much anxiety is being felt locally regarding the outcome of a dispute which ia ia progress between  the masters and mate* comprising  the Canadian Merchant Service  Guild, and the owners of steamships of the coaat and inland lake  services. The men are demanding  recognition of their union and increased pay, and the owners, while  apparently disposed to give way  on the latter point, steadily refuse  P " chief item in the loss to furni.  ture is the billiard table which was  flooded with water and covered  with debris.  No explanation can be given __  to how the fire originated, though  it is supposed to have started in a  small kitchen at the top of the  stairs from the fact that the walls  were badly burnt in that neighbourhood. This room, however,  had not been in use for several  months.  There was no one in the building at the time of the fire, and no  fire, and the whole affair remains  something of a mystery.  The loss is fully covered by insurance, but until the claims are  adjusted no definite plans can be  made regarding the Club's future  action.  City Band, reorganized for the.occasion,  and some excellent music was rendered  both afternoon and* evening. A concert  was also given in the evening which included song* by Metdatnea Ambler end  Trenwith, and Mr. J. W. B. Browne, and  dancing by Miaa Dorothy Leckie, Reba  Willita, Margaret Fumerton, Dorothea  Buck and Nelli* Whitehead. Milt Denison and Mr. H. Tod Boyd acted a* accompanists.  Later in the evening a dance was held  in the aquatic pavilion which realized over  $54.   Some novel "Honolulu Garlands"  ade by Mr*. McEwan found �� ready  tale and their colon added brightness to  the scene.  If anyone deserved success certainly the  ladies of the committee in charge did for  they had devoted a great emount of dm*  ���nd energy in preparation for th* event.  Thanks are also due to the generous donors of the various goads and to the manv  who helped in various ways. A full statement of th* finances it to be issued later.  Deijth of Mrs. Brechin  Mrs. Brechin, wife of Mr, R. T.  Brechin, of East Kelowna, passed  away Wednesday morning at the  Kelowna hospital..  The deceased lady was admitted  to the hospital a little over a week  ago suffering from a very severe  attack of appendicitis, but the disease had reached too acute a stage  to be readily treated and for several days her condition had been  very critical. Although little hope  was entertained of her recovery, it  is believed that the excitement of  the violent storm Tuesday night  might have done something to  hasten her end.  Mrs, Brechin, who was a native  of Scotland, has been resident in  Kelowna for some years and was  highly respected. She was a sister  of Miss Louden of McKenzie's  store and of Mrs. Black. She leaves  a husband and two young children.  The funeral tcok place thit  morning, the service being held in  the Presbyterian church, at 10 a.m.  Will Fight on to a Final  Settlement  President Wilson in a notable  speech on July 4th, pledged the  United States lo fight on against  the Teuton menace until a " final  settlement" is achieved. There  can be "no compromise," he saiaTj  "No halfway decision would be  tolerable."  Before an international gathering  at the tomb of Washington he  spoke "proudly|and with confident  hope" for the liberation of the nations afflicted by the " blinded  rulers" of Prussia.  He defined the ends to which,  not America alone, but "the associated peoplea of the world," are  fighting and declared for a knockout of "every arbitrary power anywhere that can, of its single choice,  disturb the peace of the world."  Miss Babbit, of Summerland, was  in town over the week-end visiting  Mrs. Ambler, returning Wednesday  in Dr. Telford's car.  Owing to th* unsettled elate of the  weather and other eircumaUnc** it has  been decided to postpone the annual camp  of the Wolf Cuba for a ahort time.  A large fruit-packing warehouse  for Stirling & Pitcairn is in the  course of erection at Vernon. The  building will occupy ground leas-  d from tha CP.R. on the east  side of the track lacing the station.  It will be 190 x 50 feet in size and  will extend back over the property  at present occupied by the W. R.  Megaw warehouse.  likely to result in a moat serious  tie-up of all western steamship  services at a very difficult time of  the year.  As the CP.R. Okanagan Lake  aervice is included in the dispute,  it seems as though, unless spme  agreement is reached before Monday (tbe day when the men threaten to resign in a body unless their  wishes are acceded to), Kelowna  and other points on the lake must  prepare to face a very disagreeable  state of things with all boat service  cut off.  At this season of the year when  expreaa shipments of fruit are heavy  the position is one of the utmost  gravity. Even a few days without  means of shipping fruit out or supplies in, would produce something  approaching a panic in the fruit  industry, and it is to be sincerely  hoped that a settlement will be  reached before that becomes necessary.  Urgent representations have already gone from Kelowna to Ottawa-, the C.P.R., the Railway Commission, and other responsible  quarters, and it is understood thet  the matter is receiving immediate  attention/  When news of the impending  strike became known an immediate effort was made to hasten  the harvesting of the cherry crop,  which is now at its height. Mr.  J. v7. Jones especially has worked  very hard in this connection, and  by Wednesday had rounded up a  large number of women & girls who  at the cost of some personal sacrifice could get out and assist  the force* of cherrv pickers already  on the benches. Strenuous efforts  thit week night avert aome of the  heavy loss in the cherry crop,  which would be inevitable as soon  as shipments were cut off,  As the strike would not affect  the railways passenger service  would atill he possible by motoring to Vernon or Penticton but  there is no possible means of  handling the freight and express  traffic.  Must Turn Milk Into  Cheese  The Canada Food Board has  advised B.C. milk manufacturers  that a* no more export orders for  milk for the Allies will be given  them, they will be able to make  condensed milk for local consumption only, and the balance of their  product mult be made into cheeae.  This decision on the part of the  authorities will work a considerable hardship on B.C. fanners because at present prices of cheese,  22c per lb. Montreal, manufacturer! will not ba able to pay more  than 46c per lb. butter fat, whereas at present thev are giving around  55c.  Cheese production had already  begun to occupy a more important  place in the province and the  change of policy on the part of the  food board meant that it mutt be  largely increased in order to take  care of the milk surplus.

Notes from the Prairie Fruit  Markets Bulletin  ing percentage of crop over last  year is given to correct that impression. These figures are subject to  weather conditions, but the table is  produced by a competent person:  Per cent.

Early front  damage is reported. Onions���Decreased acreage Condition at  present poor. Cut worms and  pests are busy.  By Commissioner J. A. Grant, Calgary.  Your M. C. finds that the all-ab-  aorbing topic of discussion amongst  prairie jobbers is the apple situation. All have been doing a little  figuring on the problem and ao we  will give our impressions. We hear  on good authority that Washington  opens with quotations from $1.00  to $1.25 C grade. Our opinion ia  that B. C. No. I Wagners, Romes  and applea of that class, will not  open under $ 1.80, and that Mcln  tosh Reds will not be quoted at  Iras than $2.25. We will try and  get aomething definite by another  issue. There is little probability  that these figures will be lower, but  a great possibility that they will be  higher. We do not believe in ex-  horbitant prices. A fair price  considering crops and the purchasing vslue of the dollar should be  aimed at. if boom prices ahould  obtain a serious curtailment in consumption is possible. We think  our figures represent a fair opening  price, just as Lincoln decided the  right length of a man's legs when  he aaid: "They ought to be long  enough to touch the ground." No  surplus; no deficit. This is our  sizing up of the apple price and we  would add : "It is a good time to  buy."  The embargo has caused a strong  demand for Canadian cucumbers.  The present hothouse supply is  insufficient to supply the demand.  Field grown cucumbers will commence to arrive in two weeks' time  and from then on until froat there  ahould be an ample healthy suppy.  Cucumbers at the opening of the  field season should command a  fair price.  Growert of field beans (not  green) can sell their crop to good  advantage. Your M.C. will connec.  them up with a ready market on  application. If any are now held  ��� over from latt year please let it be  known at once.  New B. C potato*"1 are offered  at $60 a ton f.o.b. Vancouver.  Minnesota it quoting at 3 cents a  Ib. The duty on spuds is 20 cents  a bushel and 7j per cent, ad  valorem.  The Puyallup and Sumner Fruit  Growera' Association through their  President, W. H. Paulhamus, have  offered their entire crop at market  price to the U. S. Federal Government at Washington, D.C. This  act was inspired by press reports  of the berry crop failure in England.  Latest advices we have from there  says that it is reported that the  Britiah Government has commandeered all the strawberries and  gooseberries. An offer to withdraw  from their ettablithed market all  their fruit if neceaaary is certainly  patriotic, no matter what decision  is arrived at regarding it. The  estimated amount of their crop this  year it 10.000,000 �������A.'  Saskatchewan it the greatett of  the wheat growing provinces. It  it estimated that one-sixth of their  wheat crop fell victim to the hot  dry winds early in the season.  Hon Motherwell, the Minister of  Agriculture, feels that copious rains  would yet produce as good a crop  as last year. Until a crop it assured the retail merchants buy sparingly of fruit as they tear having to  carry the accounts' over to another  year. We hope the clouds will do  their duty.  Reportt are being persistently  circulated that B.C crop of aprkots  and peaches is light.   The follow-  Correspondence  Readera ar* reminded that opinions expressed  in letters inserted under this heading are not necessarily endorsed by us. Letters should be as brief as  possible and to the point.  THE  BAND  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.

July 8,  1918  Cedar Creek Camp.  Owing to the roughness of the  lake snd the consequent breakdown in the ferry transportation,  we had a little trouble in getting  here, but thanka to our friends who  so quickly came to our assistance  with their cara and Mr. George  Kennedy with his Ford truck,, we  all got here with our stores and  equipment about 3.30 on Tuesd��v  afternoon last, We wish to thank  Messrs. DuMoulin, Gaddes and L.  Taylor for bringing us down in  their cars.  After the arrival of the second  car headquarters tent was put up  and it did not take long to get tip  the fly for the kitchen and the  other tents as soon as they arrived.  We opened camp with 16 scouts  and the scoutmaster, and while  there were some familiar camp  figures missing, the new scouts  have been doing splendidly. As  for Fong, he is proving himself a  great old "scout" and has adapted  himself to camp life with boys in  a way that is a pleasure to see.  The competition for the daily  tidy tent is very keen and close.  The Otters won the Tenderfoot  mile at scouts' pace and second-  class ambulance competitions, and  the Wolves won the Kim's Game.  On Thursday P.-L. Calder and  Scout L. Gaddes represented lhe  Iroop at the funeral of Flora Ball  and acted as pall bearers. The  very sincere sympathy of the troop  is extended to Sixer Ralph Ball of  lhe Cubs and his parents in the  sad loss they have sustained.  The assistant cubmaster ha��  been a visitor at the camp since  Friday, also P.-L. Alex Smith, of  Summerland. The whole of the  Summerland Troop came to visit  us on Sunday via {he "Skookum"  under Scoutmaster Zimmerman  and had dinner and afternoon tea  in camp,  We were also privileged to welcome Major the Rev. C. C. Owen  in camp on Sunday which was  certainly fortunate for us as he  was able to conduct the camp service and give us an earnest nnd  inspiring address which we feel  will not soon b1 forgotten. He  also took the salute from the two  troops at the trooping of the colors and march past. The Rev.  H. A. Solly, of Summerland, was a  little late to take part in the whole  of the service but we are very glad  he arrived in time to say a few  words to us.  Among several other visitors we  were pleased to welcome Mr.  Alister Cameron who is home on  a few days' leave before going  overseas. Summerland Troop left  us at 6 p.m., leaving Scout Russell  Munn with us. Undoubtedly the  1918 camp Sunday was a memorable day for us..  *       ���  Mr. Drury Price has certainly  earned a solid place in the esteem  of the troop for his kindness this  year in making a special trip to ua  early on Wednesday morning with  his launch, towing our boat and  canoe, and also in taking and  bringing back practically the whole  camp to and from the carnival in  Kelowna.  We wish to thank the following :  Messrs. A. Pease for cherries, DuMoulin, cherries, Walker, vegetables, Forster and Rowcliffe, crate  of cherries each, J. Calder, ice  cream and bananas, Mesdames  DeHart, sapk of rhubarb, Cameron,  sack of potatoes.  The following to date have also  made special trips to camp for us  with mail and provisions and we  wish to thank them: Messrs.  Gaddes, DuMoulin, Mantle and  Calder���the "Daily Mail" is working splendidly.  Wedding at Gibson's  Landing  BRUCE-CLOWER  A very pretty wedding took place  at Gibson's Landing on Wednesday  July 3rd, when Mias Gladys B.  Clower, only daughter of Gunner  and Mrs. Clower of Kelowna, was  united in marriage to Albert  Edward Bruce of New Westminster,  eldest son of W. Bruce, Rugby,  England. Dr. Sipprell of Vancouver  officiated, assisted by the Rev. F.  Coad. The bride looked charming  gowned in white silk and Georgette  crepe trimmed with pearls, with  veil and orange blossoms. She also  wote a pearl pendant, the gift of  the groom.  The church was beautifully decorated with roses and ferns. The  bride carried a handsome bouquet  of carnations and roses and entered tl-e chu.'ch on the arm of her  father. Mr. Eltei supported the  groom. Her bridesmaid Miss Alma  Magee wore pale green crepe de  chine with poke bonnet to match,  and carried a bouquet of white  roses. The two tinV flower girls  looked very sweet in pale pink  dresses. The bride's mother was  gowned in gray silk poplin.  Following the ceremony a reception was held. The tables wete  beautifully decorated with pink  and white roses. Later Mr. and  Mrs. Bruce left for Winnipeg. On  their return they will take up their  residence at their new home, 1116  Dublin St., New "'estminster. The  bride went away in a smart travelling suit of pale gray basket cloth  with white Milan hat.  Among the guests present were  Dr. Sipprell, Vancouver; Rev Mr.  and Mrs. Coad ; Rev.

The Flower and Vegetable Show  in connection with the Kelowna  Women's Institute will be held on  Saturday Aug. 3rd in the Aquatic  Pavilion. An attractive prize list  has been prepared to which local  merchants and others have generously contributed. A departure  has been made this year from the  strictly floral display and a goodly  number of prizes are being offered  for early vegetables. Another new  feature is the "garden competition"  in which keen interest is being  manifested.  One of the most pleasant evenings in the annals of the Baptist  Choir was spent .last Thursday  when a su. prise visit was paid to  the home of W. B. Pearson, who  as intimated in last week's issue,  had been transferred to Vernon,  leaving Tuesday morning.  Mr. Pearson has acted as organist  for the church for some years during which period the choir has  had a very successful career, and  the loss is a very severe one. During the evening Mr. Pearson was  presented with a handsome clock  as a token ol the choir's good  wishes and the high regard in  which he was held. Mr. S. Weeks,  one of the choir oldest members,  was entrusted with the presentation, to which Mr. Pearson replied,  expressing the hope that the choir,  which had seen some hard times  in the past, would rally round any  new leader that might be appointed in his place,  Mr. H. G. Pangman, a former  manager of the Bank of Commerce,  is a visitor in town this week.  The Hon. and Rev. T. R. Heneage, acting commissioner of the  Boy Scouts for B.C., is attending  Cedar Creek camp with the Kelowna boys this week.  Mr. R. A.

W. Arnold  Bennett will preach on "Take it by  the Tail." In the evening his sub-  ject will be "Tower-builders who  count the Cost."  A message from Mr. 1. A. F.  Wiancko at present in Calgary  conveys the gratifying news that  Kelowna Creamery butter has  again been successful in -.carrying  off some of the prizes at the Calgary Fair. No particulars are yet  given, but it is no mean honor to  have won in the face of the competition present at such a prominent exhibition as that of Calgary  The Athletic Club is arranging  a couple of games for Thursday  afternoon next, one a lacrosse and  the other a baseball match, both  with Vernon. The games will be  held in the park at times to be  announced later. In the evening  there will be a dance at which no  refreshments are to be served except lemonade, but a good local  orchestra will furnish music.  Electrical Storm Breaks  Over the District  Kelowna has a reputation for  being comparatively free from  violent electrical storms, and that  of Tuesday night probably surpassed all records for these parts. The  oppressive heat of the pastfew days  made a thunderstorm quite a  natural event, especially as heavy  clouds had been gathering. The  storm broke about 7.30 returning  at intervals throughout the night.  The vivid lightening made a  wonderful display in the skv, at  times almost continuously, and the  heavy thunder crashes furnished,  as someone remarked, a very realistic imitation of an aerial raid.  Some damage was indeed done,  the lightening having struck slightly in several places. Mr. McEach-  ern's house at Benvoulin was  slightly damaged, some of the  shingles being torn off the roof,  Mr. A. L. Soames had a narrow  escape while driving home in his  car, the lightening striking the  machine, and doing damage to  the hood. Several instances of  trees having been hit are also reported. Damage was also done to  the light and telephone systems,  and men were busy all day Wednesday working to restore service  where it had been cut off by  blowing out of fusts and damage  to transformers.  The most welcome featuie of  the storm was the heavy rain which  accompanied it. Moisture was  badly needed and many irrigation  problems will be solved by the  copious showers which came during the storm and since. Particularly is this so in the Glenmore district, where the water supply had  almost run out.

Sold by  Druggists and Grocers everywhere  Thursday, July 11th, 1918  Doukhobors Give  Thanks for Rain  Last Sunday afternoon 500 of  the 700 Doukhobors marched to  town chanting sacred songs and  clad in hand-made "nature white"  suits and dresses, with hired heads  and bare feet. There were men,  women and children, with the latter in the lead. It was a demonstration of thanks to Providence  (or rain which had commenced  that morning and continued  throughout the day. There was a  perfect downpour during the entire period of their demonstration,  which included a walk of three  miles to and from town for some  of those in the procession.  At one of the principal corners  one of the Doukhobors stopped  and spoke through an interpreter.  He said the Doukhobors had come  to invite the people to unite with  them and thank God for the rain  He had caused to fall. Truly the  rain was much needed, he said,  and the growing crops were sorely  in need of moisture.  A {second speaker referred to  the dress worn. Doukhobor women, he said, had been spinning  and weaving cloth from flax and  wool. The color of the dresses  was nature white as it came from  the flax. He said they wished to  invite all the people of Grand  Forks to help the sufferers of the  war, women, children find wounded soldiers. He said they found  from practice that they could live  on 15c a day per head, and that  was why thev invited the people  to adopt similar methods ol living,  so that the balance of wages could  be given to sufferers of the war.  The Doukhobors promised that  they would "give the balance to  help the people ruined by the  war.���Grand Forks Gazette.  Roses and Cherries for  Delegates to Nelson  In order to overwhelm the prairie delegates with flowers, and to  further contribute to the success of  the Western Canada Irrigation con.  vention which will be held at  Nelson, July 24, 25 and 26, the  people of that city have postponed their annual flower show until  the same time. The boundary  country is famous tor its flowers  and fruit, and delegates to the  convention are entertaining visions  of roses for the eye and cherries  for the rppetite. It is said that  both will be available in greatest  profusion.
